A Look at the Upcoming Yves Saint Laurent Exhibit
>>This Spring, the Denver Art Museum pays tribute to the legendary designer with Yves Saint Laurent, The Retrospective. Spanning over 40 years, the exhibit offers a complete look at Saint Laurent's career, style, and historical influence — starting with his first collection at Dior in 1958, all the way up to his final runway presentation in 2002. With over 200 haute couture pieces on display — including the very first Le Smoking — as well as photos, drawings, and films, the exhibit also examines YSL's relationship with other artists, his famous patrons — including Princess Grace of Monaco, Nan Kempner, Catherine Deneuve, and Diana Vreeland — and the exotic travels that inspired many of his collections. Click through to preview pieces from the exhibit — which runs from March 25 through July 8 — here.
